Abstract
    Large wild populations of Euchema are absent along the Kenyan Coast (except for the southernmost part, Shimoni, but even here not enough for harvesting). Some Gracilaria species have a large biomass and harvesting of the natural populations might be economically interesting (more detailed studies are necessary). outdoor mariculture in the open sea is in my opinion impossible off Kenya because of the lack of available space (unsuitable coast or other uses of the appropriate habitat). Before starting algal mariculture in outdoor ponds a thorough feasibility and cost/profitability study should be done.
